Q: Video Card not detected

Dell Latitude C810 laptop
Windows XP Professional

Lately (for reasons unknown to me) my laptop has been really sluggish and I have received the error notification (blue screen) that the nv4_disp file has some kind of error and is stuck in an infinite loop. I have done a system restore to about a month ago and things seem to be working better but I've noticed that in the device manager there is no video card listed under display adapters or anywhere for that matter. Shouldn't there be a video card there somewhere? I didn't disable a video card. Is there any way to get Windows to detect my video card short of opening the laptop and unplugging it and plugging it back in?

Preferred Solution: Video Card not detected

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Long story short

Its your Power Supply, you need a better one (say 450Watt will do)

Hey everybody i have an issue with my video card First off i have a Packard Bell EN TK- laptop with AMD Radeon HD M graphics card So long story short my file system got corrupted so i formatted my hdd reinstalled windows bit Now boot takes about minutes card detected? Video being not to be done and while im IN windows it's pretty slow problem is not the speed actually its considerably okay but that things freeze quite often Question no can the video card cause this or is it my hdd as i mentioned i had to reinstall windows cause of my hdd That being said After i Video card not being detected? got into windows i wanted to install necessary drivers The driver for my motherboard is installed i think because when i click on my MB in the device manager and go to 'install updates' it says that drivers are up to date and Video card not being detected? installed Question no is it possible that my chipset driver isnt actually installed or it isnt installed correctly thats why im getting all this trouble Next thing i wanted to do is to obviously install the video card drivers My video card didnt show up in the device manager i thought its normal since i didnt install drivers yet So i downloaded not the newest driver from amd com but that one which is listed as a necessary driver for this laptop on packardbell com it includes driver for the southbridge for usb drives and for some other stuff Everything installed correctly except for the video card driver after the isntallation it says that a problem has occured and i can view the log Once i do that it says that it failed installing my vcard driver So im sitting here now and i honestly dont know what i could do at this point I didnt really found anything usefull on the internet and one thing i can say for sure that it IS my system not detecting the video card because it sure didnt get ruined or something Dan Edit i forgot to mention that since it doesnt see my video card it is using this 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' with mb vram People in forums recommended to uninstall that thing and then try to install an amd driver I've done this and it doesnt work Now device manager doesnt show anything related to video card drivers Whats going on Its driving me crazy

Filesystem corruption and very slow system can both indicate a failing hard drive. This laptop originally came out in 2011, and if you bought it then, and have been using it daily since, it's very likely the hard drive is wearing out.

If I was you, I would find out what brand hard drive, go to the manufacturer's website, and if they have a drive checking app, download that, install it, and run it.

im trying to put in my radeon 8500 into my computer. but it is not being detected although it is in correctly. my motherboard is compatable, and i took the CMOS battery out but still no luck. do you have to uninstall the previous card for it to work. and does the radeon need its own powersupply?

A:New video card not detected

Yip, the GTX 460 INNO3D requires both PCI-e 6pin power leads attached. 400W PSU is a bit low. A quality 450W is the lowest recommended.
You may also need to go into the motherboards BIOS and change the VGA detection order, so that it looks for a graphics card on the pci-e slot instead of using the onboard HD3300.

Here is goes:

when I turned on my pc, monitors says "no input detected" . At first I think my monitor was the problem but when I connect it to my laptop it works. So I thought the problem is my video card but I inserted my old video card and it is still not detected. So I think its not the video card problem. Right now I just using my MoBo Graphics..

any replies would be much appreciated..thanks!

MoBo : MSI MS-7267
Video Card: GeForce 9500GT

You can try the same cards in another Computer(if possible). If it works then it is the slot on the MoBo and if it doesn't then its the cards.

Did you double check to see it is fully plugged in all the way? If not then do that first.

This is a fairly new system that I have conjured and I am a fairly new person to the world of computer parts. I've been trying to enable the video card so that I may use it to play beautiful games, however, the motherboard has other plans for me. It wants me to suffer. I've talked to multiple people about trying to get the card to work, and all of them have failed to figure out the issue. So far, the AMD drivers should be uninstalled, the card appears to be in a working state, (although the outside may be lying to me), and the integrated graphics should be disabled. With all of this in mind, why is the card not being detected? I turn to this forums in the name of the turtle to solve such a problem.

For the past month I have been attempting to put together a computer after my previous one literally lit on fire after a lightning storm An interesting story but not entirely pertinent to the current endeavor I recently purchased an ASUS P N-D motherboard along with a W PSU from OCZ Technology and x MB DDR memory sticks After putting it all together I put in my Palit GT and the computer refused to boot all it did was turn on all the fans giving every indication that it would start It gave me a series of beeps and upon looking up the specific beep code it turns out it s a quot video error quot which I must admit I found a bit ambiguous I reseated the card several times in card Video motherboard detected not by both slots on the motherboard but the issue remained I tested a spare Radeon HD XT I had which allowed the computer to boot up problem free with the exception of one out of place beep upon initially being turned on With the in the second PCI-E slot the computer boots without even noticing it s there I run Windows XP Pro and device manager doesn t show anything even plugged in to the slot I have read other posts where people explain this as a minor issue of setting the IRQ VGA settings of the computer into some other mode Frankly I have no idea what any of that means but from what I can gather that option isn t present in my bios Another solution I have read about simply explains to install the drivers of the video card and everything will just magically fall in to place Much to my chagrin upon attempting to install the drivers for the video card an error pops up stating that there is quot No suitable driver for my current VGA chip quot which effectively allows my computer to continue not functioning as well Video card not detected by motherboard as destroys any beliefs I have in magic being real From what I can deduce my video card is shot and I just need to suck it up and buy a new one That being said I am by no means a computer expert and thus would greatly appreciate some insight that would prevent me from having to spend or whatever it is on a new video card nbsp

Up until about a week ago i was running 1 8800 GTS, i recently aquired a gtx 260, so i figured i'd have the gtx 260 as my main card and i'd use the 8800 GTS in the second PCI-e slot to be used a phsx card. The problem is when the gtx 260 is in the first pci-express slot (top slot) and the 8800 GTS is in the second (bottom slot) the 8800 is not detected. However if the positions are reversed both cards are detected. Anyone have any solutions as to why this is happening?

PS mobo is a evga 680i

when i started my computer recently my video card (gforce 7300) was suddenly not detected. the situation now is that i have to pull out the card from the pci express and replace it before i start up everytime, otherwise it is not detected and i have to plug my monitor into the onboard socket. this system has been running fine for about 2 years until this sudden glitch.
i borrowed a gforce 7600 and put that in and it worked great for about 4-5 startups then the same problem occured
i have an AMD 3200 processor on a gigabyte motherboard. i have only one pci express slot
i have updated the bios on the motherboard and the relevant drivers to no avail.

I recently rebooted Windows Vista on my laptop, but am now having troubles running games that I had previously had no problem running. I ran dxdiag and noticed that under Display there was no video card listed under Device. There's also no driver listed under Main Driver.

I am positive that there's a graphics card in my laptop, I have definitely seen NVIDIA GeForce (I don't know what graphics card I have) or something in the dxdiag before. I'm guessing that rebooting Vista has affected the computer's detection of the video card, but have no idea how I can fix this.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Edit: I've attached the dxdiag report in case it's useful.

You need to reinstall the graphics card driver.

You can download the driver from the Samsung website. If you have the R51 then here are the downloads:
You will need to download the Vista version for the NVidia graphics if you think you had an Nvidia card: (Win Vista VGA(Graphics),NVIDIA)

Best thing to do is double check the type of drivers you downloaded. Also if you still have the disc that came with your 8400 then the drivers on that should be good. Your wanting to look for these drivers GeForce/ION Driver Release 256 here.

Hey All,

Just trying to see if anybody had any suggestions or advice, I'm trying to complete this build and the only thing not working is the Graphics card. Specs Below:

Biostar H61 Motherboard
Kingston 8GB Ram
Kingston 2x64GB SSD (128GB Total)
Galaxy GTX 460 GC 768mb
Antec "Hardcore Gamer" Edition 400w PSU

Basically, I've installed every single Windows Update, Driver, and Bios Update.

I've tried installing my old 9600 GT and it did not detect that either.

I think it's the Motherboard or PSU.

Both Motherboard and PSU are new as is the GTX 460. The 9600GT was pulled working from a working system so I know thats not broken.

The 9600GT Required one 6-pin pci-express adapter.
The GTX 460 Required 2 6-pin pci-express adapter.

I'm not sure which one the problem is because everything is new and everything works aside from the Graphics Card not being detected.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

Hi, I've got a very little understanding of computer hardware compatibility so please bear with me.

uhm so I was tinkering with my desktop, specs are
Motherboard: Asus A58M-E
Processor: AMD A8 6600K
and I recently added a video card which is the Palit 9500GT 1024MB, so I went to turn it on (DVI plugged into the vid card), but the monitor displayed no signal but the aux fan is spinning, and when I plugged the DVI back to my motherboard it worked again and I looked at the device manager>display adapters and my video card is not detected, the only thing on the list is the AMD Radeon HD 8570D which I think is the APU. what should I do to get my video card up and running?

Well.. when you plug your monitor to the video card do you get any video signal? So you are getting a black screen and you only get video signal when you plug it into the motherboards VGA port, correct?
The bios does not necessarily disable the onboard video automatically. And it has to be disabled so the motherboard sends the video signal to the discrete GPU.

That's how it worked in my system, so you might want to wait for someone to confirm what I said, or correct me.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Agp1x/2x are 3.3 volts, whereas Agp4x/8x are 1.5 volts.

You should check carefully that whatever card you get is compatible with you 2x Agp slot.

If I put the old video card back in, I can startup fine. I went into the bios and the video was already set to AGP. Ive tried removing the CMOS battery for awhile and then rebooting and I still get nothing. Any insite would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi Guys,

I am not sure if I can still fix this but I am trying not to lost hope here. This started when I upgrade my professional XP to windows7 Ultimate. I was able to use it for at least 3 months with no issue but then my computer crashed. I decided not to use windows7 anymore and then installed back my XP professional but even I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the XP os, my computer tends to use the generic driver of the video card. It will not detect now my monitor driver as well. I still have all th cd drivers but my computer always tells me it can't locate the driver. Should I replace or buy a new video card or is it my monitor driver that is damaged?

I've had some computer issues lately causing me not to be able to go on line or navigate to websites. All my problems have been fixed tho, I ran Maleware and found a couple viruses, updated my drivers, defragged my disk, and got a new modem/router for my wired and wireless network and everything is just peachy now. EXCEPT that my computer won't recognize my camera signal.

My friend told me you could do this, but he is running Ubuntu Linux so idk if its possible in Windows or CCCP.

My motherboard is an ASUS P4P8Z SE
Graphics card AMD/ATI Radeon X300 SE

The video on my screen shuts off and it doesn't even make it past the start up screen (black screen). I try to go in safe mode but it never makes it to there before video shuts off. I'm wondering if it's my video card since I do play an online game and this is just a basic card. My gf recommended that I change the video card awhile ago. Is it possible it burned out? It was working fine yesterday. I don't want an extremely expensive one since this is an old computer and I will be getting a new one in another year or so. Is there any way I can get to safe mode before the screen shuts off?

Maybe there is an issue with your power supply.

Let them go for 1 hour and see what you get. It will render your PC pretty much useless so set it and step back and watch.

I recently bought a new video card the gt 220.

I used to have a video card that died on me and now im thinking it might have been the slot that died. I don't have access to another card to check if the slot works or not with a known working video card. Just want to know what you guys thought about it because the video does go on its just not detected.

Installing drivers will do nothing if your board/windows isnt picking it up.

I had this problem a while back, I had to re plug it in a few could also be your cable thats dodgy considering it isnt picking your old one up now either, how old is the board it possible that the slot is faulty?

I have a PCI express port and inserted the graphics card yet my monitor will not start up with the PC when I turn it on (the light on the monitor which should turn green when the display shows stays orange and no display shows). I have checked the monitor cables, the graphics card connections and absolutely everything I can think but still it just won't work and the card is not being detected. I also tried to install the drivers with my monitor plugged into the onboard and it said 'no suitable hardware found for these drivers'.

I recently got a Dell Dimension E520 without a video card. I rarely play games on my computer. I plan to use it for editing and authoring my home videos. I want to stick to under 100$ for the video card.

Been reading about video cards and am leaning towards a 7300 GT , 7600 GS or 7600 GT.

Which of above cards is optimum for what I want to do.

I need the 9pin video pinout (or any information) of an 8bit 512kb Metheus 8842 086-05219-03 video card from an IBM XT I have been trying to get running.

I have a hi-res Mitsubishi BNC monitor that should work with the card if I can build a proper cable.

The card is rating at 1024x768 x 42hz which matches my old monitor, but all I get is garbage on the screen as the cable I have is not properly setup for this card. I know the XT works properly (with a different video card).

This card is an original from 1987 and is very unique and I would like to get this old autocad unit running in original condition (minus the original monitor)

The card has a Metheus 022-04900-00 M8650304 GPU and a matched 022-04899 chip onboard. the only other number on the card is 080-05220-05

So basically i did bunch of dual display setups before but using two video cards or using one video card with two outputs but this is the FIRST TIME im trying with a built in intergrated card and a PCI card.

Heres the issue.

I hooked up the PCI video card and when i plugg both monitors in, the intergrated video card gives a yellow exclamation point in the device manager and nothing shows up on the monitor. Only the PCI video card shows signal..

I tried un-installing both cards, redoing it from ground up, tried disabling and renabling both cards but only one monitor shows up and that is the PCI card.
What do you guys think?



Check that the on-board video is enabled in the Bios.

It's possible you can't have both working at the same time, should be able to check this if you know what motherboard it is.

Iím in a dilly of a pickle here.

When playing video, my screen will go black for just a second and then return to normal. With most video players, the video will then usually play, but when using BSPlayer ( to watch video, the screen will go black, return to normal and then video will not play.

It gets worse. Sometimes, I will be minding my own the computer will still be running, but then, the screen will go black, then the monitor will give me the old message:
"self test / check your pc and signal cable / monitor is working"
The computer will still be running, and the only way I know to get picture back is to restart the computer. I have gotten this error the most when the using BSplayer, which sometimes causes the monitor to just shut down like that. But other video players like divx, QuickTime, and windows media player will all occasionally not play or cause weird image problems to crop up on the screen

Also, if the computer freezes up, hitting ctrl+alt+del gives me a black screen with garbled white text.

I have updated my NVIDIA drivers and installed the latest bsplayer version, but neither of those actions fixed my dilemma.

A:bsod video scheduler and attempt to reset video card


Lets start with Driver Verifier

Verifier puts extreme stress on the drivers, bad ones will cause BSOD. If we change all those drivers we hope for no more BSODs, If you get no BSODs, then its not a driver and we look to hardware. With verifier on your computer may be a little laggy, but actually..its just doing its work.Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.

Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

To use dual screen you need to use either the onboard VGA (with a splitter cable) OR the DVI addon card.

When you put the DVI card in, disconnect the VGA and connect the monitor directly to the DVI card and start it up.

I've bought myself a new video card yesterday; HIS Radeon X1650 Pro 512mb IceQ, AGP. I went ahead to install it, and I get no picture after booting up.

I am receiving a signal to the monitor (I am not getting a "check signal" message) but no image comes to the PC. I went to put my old card in which is a Gigabyte 128mb 9600 Pro, and it now it doesn't work either!!!

Both cards are receiving power as theirs fans are chugging along.

I had also purchased a 1gig stick of RAM to complement my new video card, so I set my PC up the way it was before the attempted installation of the new card. Still nothing happening.

Current components of PC are:

I understand that you are not seeing the integrated graphics chip, despite trying to install drivers. I am happy to help with this. When you check in device manager is there any entry at all for the graphics adapter? Is there anything showing up that is an unknown device?  If so try removing the unknown device and then scan for hardware changes, from within device manager. Let me know if it pull up the graphics adapter or not. If it does, then try using the HP Support Assistant, to find and install the correct driver. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

I have place it in and tried to change the bios by disabling the onboard graphics card but there wasnt a definate option. There was 2 options that refered to graphics cards in Advance Bios Features, the two were; Init Display first and Onboard GPU.
In the Init Display first, there was 3 options, PCI slot, Onboard VGA or PEG. (which do i select?)
In the Onboard GPU, there was two options, Enable If No Ext PEG or Always Enable ( of course Enable If No Ext PEG but is this the way to disable it?)

When i put the card in and insert the plug to the graphics card, my monitor would not detect the graphic and the screen would remain black.

Any Ideas? Thanx in advance

A:New graphics card not detected

You should select PEG display first. This may sound kinda dumb lol, but does your new card have a power connector on it (it may be a 4-pin normal connector, or the new PCI-E 6 pin connector)?

If so, check it out, also you might want to try to reset the BIOS.

First make sure that the Via onboard is disabled in the bios. Next re-seat the card (maybe even try a different PCI slot) and try the driver again.

We bought a GeForce 9600 gt graphics card online and got it in the mail and installed it. Then we needed an adapter, so after some research, we got one. I have a dell inspiron 530.

I tried plugging the monitor cord into the new card spot, and the monitor stayed black, like in power save mode, so I plugged the monitor into the motherboard again. I've looked on the GeForce site for the bios, but the site says it can't detect the hardware.

I know I need to download something for this to work, but I can't get any information that's helpful on the matter. Could you guys help me out?

Hello, hope you can help. My win98se doesn't recognize the ieee1394 pci card. I've tried different IRQ, manual install, software install what else is there.
